For nearly two decades with Supergrass, Gaz Coombes came to embody the oddball end of British indie and Britpop. But through his solo work, he presents a new musical identity: wide-screen, emotional, cinematic and full of artistic surprises.
As the hagiography of Britpop’s founding fathers continues, Coombes continues to move on. One of the great freedoms in being solo is having free reign to experiment. He creates ‘fantasy bands’ in his head to invent new musical textures, then records and edits them into short loops for blink-and-you’ll-miss it ‘mini-soundscapes.’
“I loved every minute of Supergrass, apart from maybe the last few years…” he adds. “But I spent twenty years in that machine and for me it was an absolute joy to approach music a different way. Just to make some art that was not calculated to hit a certain market, or do a certain job.”
With support from Piney Gir.
